It’s almost over.
I will be in Los Angeles for two more weeks, and then I’m moving to Portland to rejoin my wife.
L.A. has been a pretty great place to live for the last 17 years. I guess it could be better. Or maybe I could be better. I dunno. I guess I’ll find out once I’m living in a very different city.
I’ve made a lot of good friends here. You know who you are. I’m going to miss you.
I don’t know how long I’ll be gone. Maybe forever, maybe a year or two. Something tells me it’ll be, barring the occasional visit, forever.
I have no idea how to mark the occasion. A party at a nice bar? A farewell comedy show?A trip to Disneyland? A day on the beach doing drugs? Maybe all of the above. AT THE SAME TIME. I don’t know. I’m bad at event planning. Most likely I’ll end up having dinner with a couple friends and then hastily posting on Facebook “oh fuck i’m leaving sorry if i forgot to say goodbye to you love you”. If anyone has any better ideas, feel free to suggest them.
Anyway, Saturday the 20th of October will be my last day here. I’ll be getting in my car and leaving, either that night or the following morning.
Please have my final paycheck ready. And I’m taking that potted plant next to the copier.
